Maj Gen Eastman is the highest ranked officer to visit 2 Highlanders in nearly two decades and with the cancellation of all camps in 2020 it was a fantastic occasion for all in attendance.

Following an introduction to the Battalion from Commandant Colonel Gordon Rae, Maj Gen Eastman headed to the training area to meet cadets who were learning about Fieldcraft, using ration packs and First Aid.

“You guys as Cadets and the Cadet Force Adult Volunteers have absolutely led the way when it comes to the new current way of socially distanced training and what I have seen here today is outstanding.”

Many of the cadets joined the Battalion during lockdown and were enjoying their first opportunity for face-to-face training on a gloriously sunny day in Aberdeen.
